I'm no lawyer here but I'd have to question this statement. I can see
where a discussion which attempted to invoke a momopolistic price fixing
scheme ensued, it could be consider illegal but none of the palyers here
are in any type of monopolistic position that I know of to have this
happen. I don't see where a discussion of pricing is illegal. You can
buy books off of the shelf which recommend price structuring and such.
